Arch support is minimal, though, and we noticed sole curvature issues with certain pedal systems, too.Despite being in the cycling footwear market for less than a year, Giro have impressively gotten their last shape nicely zeroed in, with a snug fit through the midsection, an appropriately roomy toe box and admirable heel hold despite the Apeckx's rather simple heel construction. The offset straps and densely padded tongue alleviate pressure well, too, as long as things aren't unreasonably cranked down.Breathability is very good even in high heat and humidity, with a quality microfiber upper and mesh cutouts – as proven by one BikeRadar tester during the Miami Gran Fondo. An extra bonus is the Aegis-treated antimicrobial treatment on the footbed to reduce odor.
